The Cookin Canuck turned this salad into a bread recipe that is just as suitable for summertime. Caprese Olive Oil Bread has sun dried tomatoes, mozzarella (in the form of tiny bocconcini balls) and fresh basil ... Read More »

I have always been a big fan of the chocolate, vanilla and strawberry combination of neapolitan ice cream. See You In The Morning took that flavor combination out of the freezer and put it into cake form, a Neapolitan Bundt Cake. The cake starts out as a moist, sour cream bundt cake. The batter is divided and cocoa powder and dark chocolate are added to ... Read More »
